    Bobby is nearly 11 months old. He has had the odd flatulence problem but today!!!! He is asleep at my feet and the smell is constant.
    I havent changed his main diet, but i did give him a 'very hard' hide chew from the pet shop yesterday, and I have also been told by the neighbour that she fed him a little of her bbq'd beef burger yesterday. (Through the fence)
    So, hide or burger? or neither?

    Probably the beef burger.

    BBQ meat can be full of bacteria. He may or may not get the runs.

    Have a word with your neighbour and ask her not to do it again.

    I would not be impressed if my neighbour did that i have to say!!

    I am betting it was the burger. I give my two hide chews all the time and have never noticed a problem in that department.

    Take him to visit the neighbour for an hour maybe she will think twice next time she wants to feed him burgers!! ;)

    i wouldn't be impressed either!....i bet it was the burger too, specially if it had cheese on it.

    our vet said Cheese is one of the main causes of dogs parping

    Poor little chap. I bet he enjoyed it going in, not so much coming out.

    If you have some, just give him a bland feed of just chicken and rice for 24-48 hours. Maybe some probiotic natural yog if you have some, and if he is dairy tolerant.
    He'll be fine in a couple of days.
